Step-by-Step Guide to extracting image dataThis page describes the typical steps a user might go through when extracting data using the image extraction form. It is aimed at the first-time user and goes on to describe how the data can be displayed and interrogated using the GAIA software package.
The form under discussion allows the user to extract up to a 15 arcmin area from SuperCOSMOS scans of various Schmidt photographic surveys. If the requested part of the sky is on-line a pixel image (FITS format) with an embedded object catalogue (FITS table) is returned.
